THE TREASURER'S REPORT. 



The Treasurer in submitting his report calls attention to the 
receipts and expenditures for the past year, and regrets to say 
that there is an excess of expenditure over income of ;g 1,204.58. 

We have received from Mr. Thomas Minns, as executor of the 
estate of Robert Charles Billings, a bequest of ;J3,ooo, the condition 
of the bequest being that such sum shall be invested as the Robert 
Charles Billings Fund and the income only used for general pur- 
poses of the Hospital. This money has been invested. 

Under the will of Mrs. Sarah E. Potter the Hospital is named 
as a beneficiary, and will later receive the sum of $10,000. As 
we also have an interest in the residuary of Mrs. Potter's estate, 
we expect to receive under her will a sum considerably larger 
than the amount just named. 

The Hospital has also been named as a legatee in the will of 
Miss Mary McGregor Means, and we shall later receive J?3000 
from Miss Means's estate. 

Under date of July 6th last, the Treasurer exchanged the three 
^1000 Mastin Sub-division Loan Bonds (or, to describe them 
more strictly, the three coupon promissory notes signed by the 
Mastins) for thirty shares in the Trust Property held under an 
agreement of trust for the protection and benefit of those who 
like the Hospital are interested as creditors in the Mastin prop- 
erty. The Trustees are Edward D. Codman and Moses Williams, 
Jr. The thirty shares of stock are in their hands, and the Treas- 
urer holds their receipt for the same. This stock belongs to the 
Gifford Fund, and was one of the earliest investments of the 
Hospital.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR, 



Although the present Hospitar;has grown less and less fitted 
to meet the demands which the infants of the poorer classes are 
continually making on our care, yet it is gratifying to note that 
there are recorded 723 visits more than during the year 1903. 233 
patients were admitted to the medical wards and 64 to the sur- 
gical, making a total of 297. In the out-patient department, 1903 
medical patients came under our care and 631 surgical, amounting 
to 2640. The medical visits were 7606 and the surgical 4031, 
amounting to 11,637, — 7^3 visits more than last year. 

When we consider how very small and poorly ventilated are 
the rooms connected with our out-patient department, it is re- 
markable how much good has been done to the community and 
how many favorable results have been accomplished. The medi- 
cal and surgical staff deserve the greatest credit for this work, 
which they are carrying on under the most adverse circumstances 
in their cramped quarters. 

Eleven graduate nurses have received their diplomas during 
the year, and eleven nursery maids. Most favorable reports 
have been received from the families where the nurses are em- 
ployed in regard to the kind of teaching which it is our endeavor 
to carry out in this school. The care and nursing of young infants 
is but slightly known by those nurses who take their diplomas in 
the schools connected with large hospitals, and consequently 
there is a great need of having these nurses receive post graduate 
instruction in the care of infants. It has frequently during the 
year been reported to us that when our nursery maids have been 
employed in cases where a child being ill and a trained nurse 
engaged to take care of the child during this illness, that the 
nursery maid showed the result of her hospital training, in that 
she worked in harmony with the nurse who was over her. As is 
well known, this is not usually the case where the nursery maid 
has not been trained to work with the trained nurse. This 
lack of harmony and the great amount of friction arising in cases 
of this kind is conducive of detriment to the baby and of general 
discomfort to the family where the two nurses are employed. 



13 

We are looking forward to the time when in the new hospital, 
well equipped, properly ventilated and away from its present un- 
hygienic surroundings, we can keep the wards open in summer. 
This we hope at no distant time to do, when the new hospital is 
built on land adjoining the Fenway. 

Of especial importance in the construction of the new hospital 
will be a proper proyisipn for the care of premature babies. There 
is no place at present where this class of cases can be intelligently 
treated, and yet there is no doubt that there is a great demand 
for especial nursing and for the best hygienic surroundings if the 
lives of these premature infants are to be saved. 

The Directors especially wish to acknowledge the services of 
Dr. Roger Spalding in the Medical service and Dr. James R. 
Torbert in the Surgical service. They appreciate the difficulties 
which will always arise in these departments so long as patients 
have to be treated in the present quarters. 

The thanks of the Directors are given to the Ladies who so 
successfully conducted the fair, and also to the Ladies' Aid Society, 
which has contributed so much to the supplies of the Hospital. 

The administration of the Hospital has been faithfully carried 
out under the Director of Nurses, Miss Jones, and the Assistant 
Secretary, Miss Aubin, to whom especial thanks are due. 

The Directors wish to especially draw attention to the fact 
that as the Hospital is largely supported by private contributions 
all those who have the welfare of the Hospital at heart should 
endeavor to increase the number of annual subscribers. 

The list of diseases treated in the wards and out-patient depart- 
ment is appended to this report.

THE OUT-PATIENT DEPARTMENT. 



This department of the Hospital is increasing every year in 
importance and usefulness, and is practically self-supporting. 
During the past year there were over eleven thousand visits, 
including over two thousand new patients. 

Medical and surgical cases not requiring hospital care are re- 
ceived for treatment daily from 9 to 1 1 a.m. (Sundays and holidays 
excepted). Cases for admission to the Hospital should be referred 
to the Out-Patient Physician during these hours. 

Emergency cases will be admitted at any time if there is an 
existing vacancy. Questions in regard to such cases, and other 
matters of information, may be referred by telephone to the 
Hospital at any time.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



During the past year 271 infants have been admitted to the 
wards, and 271 1 new patients have been treated in the Out patient 
Department. This however does not represent the great extent 
of the work which is carried on in the inadequate quarters allotted 
to the out-patients. This can only be shown by the number of 
visits which has increased from 11637 i" 1904 to 12745 in 1905. 
These figures are very significant as emphasizing the fact that a 
hospital for infants is much needed in our community, and that 
this need is shown by the number of beds in the wards being too 
small to accommodate all who apply for entrance, while where ex- 
pansion is possible it is shown in the extra 1108 visits of out- 
patients, as contrasted with the 723 increase recorded for 1904. 

What should especially be dwelt upon in this report is that 
while considerable extra expense has been incurred from having 
to provide fire escapes in accordance with the law, it is still very 
evident that our income does not cover our expenses by over ^1200. 
There is no question but that the hospital is carrying on a very 
important work and one which is not being done elsewhere. It 
is perhaps not generally known that the expense of caring for 
babies is far greater than for adults and much greater than for 
children. The amount which has to be expended on washing and 
for nurses alone is, in an infant hospital, so much beyond what is 
usually recognized as sufficient for ordinary hospitals, that it al- 
most precludes a proper amount of attention and care when infants 
are treated with older patients. For this reason it is imperative 
that our work should be carried on separately, and that those who 
are interested in saving life at the time when it is most important 
and difficult to do so, should make an effort to increase the gener- 
al income by increasing the number of yearly subscribers. 

Our institution is at present in a stage of crisis and change, and 
unless a large endowment is obtained so that its twenty-four years 
of valuable increasing work can be carried on and amplified, a 
serious blow will be given to the advancement of our knowledge 
of the diseases of early life, and to the reduction of the great mor- 
tality which is so marked in infants as contrasted with children 
and adults. 



12 

The Directors offer their thanks to the men and women who 
have in the past year made it possible by the annual fair to meet 
the expenses, which must necessarily be incurred if babies are to 
be cared for properly. They appreciate the efforts which these 
devoted friends of the Hospital have made, and would wish to see 
these efforts supplemented by an endowment fund which would 
make their work in the future less burdensome. 

The present position of the institution is that the land for the 
new Hospital has been purchased and paid for : that the sum which 
is held in trust for the building of the Hospital is not sufficient by 
from 1^40,000 to $50,000 for building, and that even if the Hospital 
could be built, an endowment which would yield at least $10,000 
to $12,000 a year would be required in addition to the present in- 
vested funds, to run the new building. The Directors have thought 
that this statement should be made to the Corporation and possibly 
to the public in order that it should be known with what difficulties 
the great humanitarian and scientific work of the hospital is sur- 
rounded. 

It is with sincere regret that we mention the deaths of a number 
of friends of the Hospital, and subscribers to the annual fund for 
income. Mrs. Henry Callender, Mrs. George Burgess, Mrs. Richard 
Gary, Mrs. F. B. Greene, Miss Elsie Dexter, Mr. George Thatcher, 
and Mr. Francis Skinner, have all died during the past year. 

The work in the two schools for nursing has been carried on 
with its usual success and ten graduate nurses and twelve nursery 
maids have received diplomas. This part of the Hospital work 
has proved year by year to be of great service to the public, and 
the waiting list for those who wish to obtain the services of our 
nursery maids is always large. 

The Directors wish to acknowledge the great assistance given 
by the Ladies Aid Society in contributing as they do so liberally 
to the supplies for the Hospital, and to offer their thanks to them. 

The Directors, in recognizing and thanking the regular Medical 
and Surgical staff for their services, wish to especially mention 
two gentlemen who have voluntarily and without appointment 
helped to fill out vacancies in the Out-patient Department ; this 
work has been done in the most satisfactory manner by Dr. Henry 
Ingersoll Bowditch and Dr. James R. Torbert ; and they also wish 
to thank Dr. Max Sturnick for his kindly help at various times. 

In October, 1905, Miss Mary A. Jones, who has filled so admirably 
the position of Director of Nurses for six years, resigned in order 
to*take up private nursing. Miss Jones' work has been marked not 
only by absolute devotion to the hospital interests, but by the 
most unusual executive ability and intelligent understanding of a 
very difficult problem. We incur a great loss by her resignation, 



13 

and can only tell her how we all appreciate what she has done, 
and how much we regret that she cannot continue this especial 
work. Miss Fairbrother, who is admirably fitted from her experi- 
ence as Head Nurse, has been appointed in Miss Jones' place and 
is managing the Hospital efficiently. 

The Directors finally cannot praise too highly the care and de- 
votion to her work shown with unflagging interest for twelve years 
by Miss Aubin. No other person connected with the institution 
understands and does so much to regulate the rather complicated 
details of the Hospital. 

The list of diseases treated in the wards and in the Out-patient 
Department is appended to this report.

THE OUT-PATIENT DEPARTMENT. 



This department of the Hospital is increasing every year in 
importance and usefulness, and is practically self-supportin"g. 
During the past year there were over twelve thousand visits, an 
increase of 1108 visits, including over two thousand new patients. 

Medical and surgical cases not requiring hospital care are re- 
ceived for treatment daily from 9 to 11 a.m. (Sundays and holidays 
excepted). Cases for admission to the Hospital should be referred 
to the Out-Patient Physician during these hours. 

Emergency cases will be admitted at any time if there is an 
existing vacancy. Questions in regard to such cases, and other 
matters of information, may be referred by telephone to the 
Hospital at any time. 

Telephone — 326 Haymarket.

The Infants' Hospital is a Hospital devoted to the medical 
and surgical treatment of infants. 

The patients taken care of in the Hospital wards are under two

Medical and surgical cases not requiring Hospital care are re- 
ceived for treatment daily from 9 to 1 1 a.m. (Sundays and holidays 
excepted). Cases for admission to the Hospital should be referred 
to the Out-patient Physician during these hours. 

Emergency cases will be admitted at any time if there is an 
existing vacancy. Questions in regard to such cases, and other 
matters of information, may be referred by telephone to the 
Hospital at any time. 

Telephone — 326 Haymarket. 

A Post-graduate course of instruction for Nurses is given at the

TREASURER'S REPORT. 



The increase in our income this year is principally the result 
of an appeal made in June last in a circular letter, by which we 
hoped especially to increase the number of our annual subscribers. 
This appeal brought in the sum of $4,^26.00^ a part of which was 
given as donations for the year 1906, and a part of which came 
as annual subscriptions ; that is, agreements to pay a certain sum 
yearly. Some of these yearly payments are to extend over a 
period of ten years and some over shorter periods. 

We have received this year from William Augustus Rust and 
Alexander F. Wadsworth, executors of the estate of Mrs. Nancy 
E. Rust, the sum of ;^iooo, to be invested as the Frank Davison 
Rust Memorial Fund, and the income only used. We understand 
that at a later date this Fund will be increased to ^3000. 

We also note a bequest under the will of the late Charles 
Merriam of ^1000, which has not yet been received. 

We also received an additional ^500 for the A. B. Fund from 
our anonymous friend A. B. 

The Treasurer also has to record receipt of the sum of ^850, 
collected by a friend of the Hospital who has asked that her name 
be not published. This sum was given for ** running expenses of 
the new Thomas Morgan Rotch Jr. Memorial Hospital for Infants," 
to be *' applied as part of the income for the first year or towards 
a fund from which the income can be derived." This money, 
therefore, is not available for use until the new Hospital is built. 
The generous donors are as follows : — 

Mr. F. W. Hunnewell - - - $500 

Mr. H. S. Grew - - . - 100 

Mr. T. Jefferson Coolidge - - 100 

Mr. William S. Dexter - - 100 

Mr. W. Amory Gardner - - - 50 1^850 

The Treasurer is also pleased to state that the Trustees of the 
Mastin Mortgage Securities, which securities have been held so 
long by the Hospital as a part of the Gifford Fund, have been 
successful in getting for the holders par for their stock. Besides 
this, we received in back interest on this investment ^240, which 
is properly credited to the income of the Gifford Fund. It is 
possible a further small amount may be received on account of 
this investment.

REPORT OF MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



During the past year the hospital has shown its usual growth 
in the number of patients treated and its importance as a centre 
to which thousands of infants and children from one of the poorest 
and most crowded districts of Boston gravitate in search of the 
sympathetic aid which they know is always ready for them. The 
total admission to the wards was 294, an increase of 27 on the 
previous year. In the Out-patient Department there have been 
presented 2,929 new patients, a gain of 218 in 1905. To really 
understand, however, the enormous work which is carried on in 
the out-patient department, where children of all ages up to twelve 
years are received, it should be known that while the total num- 
ber of visits in 1904 was 11,637 ^"^ i^ iQ^Sj 12,745, it reached, 
in 1906, 13,491, an increase of 696 on the previous year. It has 
been so strongly impressed on me in this past year how necessary 
is the continued existence of this out-patient department on the 
site where it now stands on Blossom Street, that I have strongly 
urged the Directors to arrange for a permanent modern building 
on the same land, but in place of the old buildings. I am con- 
vinced that it is not well to move our entire plant away from Blos- 
som Street, where we are looked up to as a beneficent and humane 
benefactor by the swarming throngs of children and mothers who 
crowd through our narrow doorway into our ill-ventilated and nar- 
row waiting room. If you could but see on some hot day in Au- 
gust the absolute insufficiency of room space which is provided 
for this crowd of anxious humanity, sick and pathetic, your hearts 
would be filled with a great desire to at least give these people air 
and sitting room while waiting to be taken into the still narrower 
quarters where our devoted physicians, surgeons and nurses re- 
ceive and care for them. If you could see how often, day after 
day, there is no room to get through our door, and how the door 
steps and even the sidewalk are filled with these patient waiters, 
each meekly taking their turn, you would wonder why these people 
do not go just across the street and enter the broad doorways and 
the large well-ventilated airy rooms of the great out-patient de- 
partment of the Massachusetts General Hospital. I will tell you 
why, and then you will not wonder, but will agree with me that 



13 

they sre sensible, far-seeing people who appreciate where best their 
interests lie. 

In the great hospital, equipped as well as any in the world, they 
are massed in with people of all ages and lose their especial 
identity. In our small, poorly-equipped hospital they are treated 
as individuals and know that our whole staff are devoting all their 
time to children. They are met with kind words and sympathetic 
ears. Our Superintendent of Nurses, Miss Story, has placed at 
their command her trained graduate nurses — neat, skilful, ready 
with deft hand and pleasant voice to help the mother soothe her 
sick child as it is brought before ci e different members of an ad- 
mirable staff. 

They meet the well known and kindly face of our apothecary, 
Miss Wilbur, and they see the ever pervading and reassuring 
personality of our long serving assistant secretary, Miss Aubin, 
whose preeminence in systematic detail has made the hospital re- 
spected and loved. This is why the poor cluster to our narrow 
doorway. 

My idea and desire is to sell what land we do not need, and, 
reserving ample space, to build up with the proceeds of our sale 
a new and commodious out-patient building where the poor in 
addition to humane treatment may breathe in the air of a large 
and well ventilated waiting room, with ample provision above for 
staff and nurses. 

In this building also we can have all the hospital laundry done, 
a possibility which the ladies of the corporation will surely appre- 
ciate. 

The locality on Blossom Street is, however, so poor a one for 
the treatment of the babies in our wards, especially in summer, 
that we have for this reason to close the hospital during July, 
August and September. We shall, therefore, for our ward patients 
erect the new memorial hospital in the midst of the fresh air and 
pleasant surroundings of the land by the Harvard Medical School. 

Such are our aspirations, and I feel that it will not be long be- 
fore they are fulfilled. We are now practically only waiting to be 
assured that we have sufficient yearly income to meet the expenses 
of the whole plant. 

The fund for building the Memorial Hospital is now almost suf- 
ficient for its purpose, and amounts to a little over $75,000, which 
is held on deposit with Messrs. Kidder,' Peabody & Co., at 5 % 
interest. The land has already been paid for. 

Another subject which your medical director has thought wise 
to bring before and recommend to the Board of Directors is that 
they should request the Corporation to change its name to that 
of the " Infants Hospital." There are many reasons why I believe 



14 

this to be for the best good of the plant as a whole, and I hope 
that you all will agree with me. 

The Directors offer their thanks to those who have devoted 
their time to the annual fair of 1906, and with a small surplus in 
their treasury in January 1907, hope to omit the fair this year, 
and, they trust, in the future. The Directors acknowledge the 
aid given by the Ladies' Aid Society, and present their thanks to 
the Hospital Staff for their good work. 

It is with sincere regret that I have to record the deaths of two 
members of the Corporation : — Mr. Charles Merriam and Mrs. 
Robert C. Hooper. Mrs. Hooper has for many years given us 
active aid and made herself beloved by all who met her in connec- 
tion with the Hospital work. Her great tact and the notable 
sweetness of her disposition helped us at a time when we needed 
such help greatly, and we shall always remember her as a bene- 
factress and friend of the Hospital. 

I also wish to express my regret for the loss of one of our nurse 
maids. Miss Catherine Leichman, who was attacked with appen- 
dicitis while on duty, and died at the Massachusetts General Hos- 
pital. 

Ten nurses took the graduate course, and eight nursery maids 
completed their course. 

After a most successful year's service as Superintendent of 
Nurses, Miss Fairbrother resigned in September. Her place has 
since been filled by Miss Marion Story, who has entered upon her 
work with such honest zeal and enthusiasm that we cannot but feel 
that she will be a worthy successor of her admirable predecessors. 

I should also like to present to the members of the Corporation 
and to those who are interested in reading this report the follow- 
ing appeals from Mrs. Winthrop Sargent and Mr. N. S. Bartlett. 

THOMAS MORGAN ROTCH, 

Medical Director, 



To THE Corporation of the Infants' Hospital : — 

As Chairman of the Hospital Comniittee of Ladies, who 
thoroughly understand and believe in the work of this Hospital, 
I should like to bring to the attention of the Corporation, and 
through them to the public, certain points in connection with the 
great work of this Hospital. 

The Hospital has established for itself a position in the com- 
munity held by no other institution, in that it devotes itself en- 



15 

tirely to babies, a class of patients which by virtue of their tender 
age cannot be cared for properly without great expense in regard 
to washing, nursing and food. If twenty sick babies are to be 
taken care of in a sanitary way, this means five thousand more 
articles a week for the laundry over and above the washing needed 
for the same number of older children and adults. From two to 
three times as many nurses are needed for these infants as are 
required for older children and adults. The proper supply and 
preparation of food for infants is far more expensive than that 
required for children and adults. 

A special hospital for the sick babies of the poor, therefore, 
becomes a public necessity, and should be supported by the public, 
for surely to save the lives of these young infants means to save 
life where it especially ought to be saved. This Hospital is not 
of local value only, since it provides free beds for poor babies from 
all parts of New England. If this were better understood the 
people living outside of Boston, realizing that the babies in their 
districts could be taken to this Hospital, would, I knov^, gladly 
countenance and aid such a manifestly important charity. 

In this Hospital a very important work is carried on in the 
most admirable way, and one which connects itself closely with 
the practical details of every household where there are babies — 
namely, a long-established and successful training school for 
graduate teaching, given to those nurses who have already taken 
their diplomas in other hospitals, and who desire to secure this 
special and more advanced training. There is also a training 
school for nursery maids, where young women between eighteen 
and thirty years of age, who have been examined by a physician 
and found to be healthy and strong and fitted for this work, are 
trained to be obedient, skilful, neat servants, fitted to become 
good nursery maids for well babies, and to serve under the trained 
graduate nurse when the baby is ill. This school has a long 
waiting list, and these nursery maids are highly appreciated by 
the public and are much sought after. 

In company with a large number of ladies, many of them moth- 
ers, deeply interested in the success of this admirable work, I 
appeal to all who are interested in the welfare of babies to aid the 
Directors of the Infants' Hospital to perfect this work, which is 
not duplicated anywhere in New England, by obtaining for them 
a sufficient number of annual subscriptions to maintain the pro- 
jected new Hospital in the best manner. 

Mrs. WINTHROP SARGENT, 

Chairman of the Hospital Committee of Ladies,

To THE Friends of the Infants' Hospital : — 

The present Blossom Street Hospital buildings are very oldj 
very inconvenient, lacking in modern conveniences, not to say 
necessities ; in short, quite unfit for the purposes for which they 
are being used. 

A fund has been raised for the building of a new Hospital, and 
this money is in the hands of Trustees. Land for the new Hos- 
pital has been purchased of Harvard University, close to the new 
buildings of the Harvard Medical School. The funds in the hands 
of the Trustees to be devoted to the building of the new Hospital, 
the land having already been paid for, amounts to about ^75,000. 

We hope that we shall soon be in a position to go on with the 
building of the Hospital, and believe there would be little or no 
delay if we could see our way as regards assured income to carry 
on the new Hospital when completed. 

One of the most important parts of the work of the present 
Hospital is its Out-patient Department, where hundreds of patients 
are treated each year. It would be cruelty to the poor of the 
northern and western parts of our city to have the Out-patient 
Department abandoned or moved far away, say to where our new 
Hospital is to be built. A plan now proposed, which we trust 
will be carried out, is to continue an Out-patient Department on 
Blossom Street in connection with the new Hospital at the other 
end of the city. To accomplish this it is proposed to sell a part 
of our real estate on Blossom Street, and with the proceeds (which, 
we hope, will be nearly enough for our purpose) to erect a new 
and convenient building on the old site ; this to take the place of 
the old and unfit quarters now in use for our out-patients. 

This, briefly, is the plan for the future. In the meantime the 
work is going on at the old Hospital on Blossom Street, and what 
we want is a larger assured income for the present needs and a 
still larger assured income for our future needs. We made an 
appeal this last summer for annual subscribers, which was gener- 
ously responded to, but we still need more income. We must now 
make another appeal for more money. What we want are more 
annual subscribers, but help of any kind will be most gratefully 
received. 

Those who are interested and would like to visit the old Hos- 
pital will be welcomed, and every facility given them to examine 
into this charity. Any inquiries will be answered by addressing 
the Treasurer at the Hospital, where subscriptions or donations 
may also be forwarded. 

NELSON S. BARTLETT, 

Treasurer.

TREASURER'S REPORT. 



The year 1907 has, from a financial point of view, been a 
fortunate one for the Hospital. Besides a bequest of ^10,000 
under the will of Mrs. Sarah E. Potter, we have received, as one of 
Mrs. Potter's residuary legatees, the additional sum of ^29,315.64, 
making a total of nearly ^40,000 received under Mrs. Potter's will. 
About two-thirds of this amount was paid over by her executors 
in the shape of securities, but as these securities were generally of 
a high class, and because of the abnormally depressed condition 
of the stock market were taken at very low valuations, it is safe to 
say that in a time of normal conditions, Mrs. Potter's gift to the 
Hospital would exceed ^40,000. 

The Hospital also received from Mrs. Potter's executors on ac- 
count of income, the sum of ^1,016.16. 

The bequest of ^1000 under the will of the late Charles Merriam 
has also been paid to us. 

While these bequests will make a substantial increase in our 
income (this increase will be perhaps ^1,600), it will still be neces- 
sary to do what we can to increase the number of our annual sub- 
scribers, and to procure donations and gifts to carry on the work. 
And in this connection the Treasurer begs to call attention to the 
fact that the income for the year 1907 from sources as shown in 
the report were insufficient to meet our expenses. The deficiency 
was, however, made good from the balance of income on hand 
January i, 1907. 

By a payment from the Permanent Fund of 1^2500, the last of 
the mortgage indebtedness on the Seabury Place property has been 
cancelled, and the Hospital is now free of debt. 

N. S. BARTLETT. 

Treasurer.

REPORT OF MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



Instead of the discouraging reports of which have had to be 
made to the Corporation in the past, in connection with the history 
of the Hospital, which usually has been that of pressing need of 
funds to prevent it from entering upon a new year with its debts 
unpaid, I am happy to be able to report that I have nothing to 
record but prosperity and encouragement, in the belief that the 
Hospital is rapidly being placed on a sound footing. 

We are entering upon a new year with a considerable surplus, 
as shown by our Treasurer's account. This condition has been 
largely brought about by the exertions of both the men and women 
who have increased our annual subscriptions and have held a num- 
ber of entertainments in behalf of the Hospital. We wish to thank 
them and, as representing the Board of Directors, I wish to assure 
them that what they have done is greatly appreciated. 

The Directors believe that the chief source of income for run- 
ning expenses should, until sufficient endowment is obtained, be 
derived from annual subscriptions. The Directors hope that all 
who are interested in the hospital will make a special effort, year 
by year, to increase these annual subscriptions, for upon this in- 
crease of income depends the future of the Hospital so far as build- 
ing the new Hospital is concerned. In laying so much stress on 
the subject of annual subscriptions they do not mean in any way 
to give the impression that as many entertainments as possible 
should not be given during the year. Even very small entertain- 
ments are desirable, since it is not only the money which is re- 
ceived from these entertainments, however small or large it may 
be, which is of use in carrying on the expenses of the Hospital, 
but far beyond this is the bringing of the Hospital before the notice 
of the public as many times as possible during the year. In this 
way the Hospital is likely to be mentioned in philanthropists' wills 
and also will be more likely to receive often much larger sums 
than the entertainments bring to the Hospital treasury. 

During the year special arrangements have been made with the 
Managers of the Faulkner Hospital to supply the Infants' Hospital 
with a certain number of trained nurses. The arrangement is that 
the nurses at the Faulkner Hospital should complete their course 
of instruction at the hospital and shall then, before receiving their 
diplomas, take a course at the Infants' Hospital. 



14 

The training School for Nursery Maids is becoming more popu- 
lar, and we still have many inquiries which cannot be satisfied and 
a long waiting list for this class of nurses. 

It is possible that during the coming summer the Directors 
may decide that it is wise to treat a certain number of sick babies 
in tents on the ground belonging to the Hospital in close juxta- 
position to the Medical School buildings. 

As the Infants' Hospital is unable to open its wards in the sum- 
mer, these tents will, we think, be of infinite service to the sick 
babies in the poorer districts. 

It is with the greatest regret that I have to mention the death 
of one of the members of our Corporation, Stephen Van Rensse- 
laer Thayer. 

In the autumn our Director of Nurses, Miss Marian Story, after 
having served most faithfully in her care of the institution, was 
forced to resign on account of serious illness. The Directors 
wish to express to her and to her family their appreciation of the 
delicacy and refinement which she brought to her work in the 
hospital, and to offer their sincere wishes for her eventual recov- 
ery. Miss Story's place is now filled by Miss Farquhar, whose 
reputation for organization and as a disciplinarian in a number of 
other institutions, ensures us that the Infants' Hospital has ob- 
tained the aid of one w^hose work cannot but be satisfactory. 

The Directors offer their sincere thanks to the physicians and 
surgeons connected with the hospital. Their work has been most 
excellent, and their self-denial in carrying on such a large work 
under such adverse circumstances is most praiseworthy. 

Miss Helen W. Aubin, our Assistant Secretary, it is needless 
to say, has done all that she undertook to do in past years, and is 
of the greatest aid, from her long experience with our hospital 
affairs, in making the Hospital popular, both to the laity and to the 
physicians who so frequently come to see what is being done for 
sick infants. 

The Directors trust that in another year the Hospital will have 
received so much aid from its already numerous admirers that 
they will be able to state that some definite decision has been 
made as to the building of the Hospital next to the Medical School, 
and the new Out-Patient Department on the site of the present 
building.

• Medical Director.

Boston, January 29, 1909. 

Having been appointed an Auditing Committee at the Annual Meeting 
of the Infants Hospital Corporation on January 31, 1908, we have had the accounts 
audited by Charles F. Kellogg, Public Accountant, and have examined and verified 
the Bonds, Stocks and Mortgages in the hands of the Treasurer and found them 
correct.

TREASURER'S REPORT. 



The Treasurer has to report that in October of last year the 
Hospital bank account was so exhausted that the question pre- 
sented itself as to whether we must dispose of some of our invest- 
ments or perhaps borrow money to meet our expenses. We had 
but a few hundred dollars on hand, and had expended all our in- 
come, and a considerable sum, in fact the larger part of the money 
put aside for investment in the Permanent Fund. 

At this juncture in our affairs, Mr. George A. Draper generously 
came to our assistance, as shown in the accompanying report. 

The Treasurer would again emphasize the necessity of increasing 
our list of annual subscribers. 

As regards the investments of the Hospital and the income de- 
rived therefrom, a careful statement has been prepared by Mr. 
William Rotch of our auditing committee, which shows the total 
face value of our securities to be ^77,650, with a market value of 
approximately ^88,572. From these investments we receive, say 
^3,600 per annum, this being a return of slightly over 4 per cent, 
on the market value as stated above. 

The foregoing has of course nothing to do with the Building 
Fund, now in the hands of the Building Committee. 

The Treasurer is pleased to state that under the will of the late 
Caleb Chase, we are a legatee for the sum of ^5000. 

N. S. BARTLETT, 

Treasurer.

REPORT OF MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



Although the year 1908 has not been successful from a finan- 
cial point of view, yet there has happened in it much which 
is of a most encouraging nature for the future prospects of the 
Hospital. 

A new interest and one which will probably be a lasting one 
sprung up during the year, and has grown month by month as the 
year went on. The public has awakened to the fact that the work 
of the Infants Hospital is one which is unique, that it is not dupli- 
cated by any other institution in New England, and that after its 
twenty-seven years of continually increasing work it has become 
established as an entity of importance and necessity in the com- 
munity. 

It is fairly well recognized that the time has come when the 
Hospital should be put on its feet financially, and that to join its 
list of annual subscribers is something which is almost a duty of 
all good citizens. 

The city, so liberal in many other respects, does not make special 
provision for the most helpless and the most needy of its people. 
The care of poor sick infants is neglected to an extreme which it 
is difficult to explain, but is a very evident fact. 

It seems hardly conceivable that under these circumstances the 
eventual accomplishment of raising funds for yearly income can 
be anything but successful. If all the friends of the helpless in- 
fants of our State would join in asking their friends to subscribe 
even one dollar annually for the Hospital income, there is not 
much doubt but that sufficient income would be raised to justify 
the Directors in building the new Memorial Hospital at once. 
The present Hospital building on Blossom Street cannot stand 
for many years longer, it is almost tottering now with age, and 
last summer some of the floors had to be braced by beams below; 
something must soon be done or the only institution of its kind 
in New England will cease to exist. It will be now as it has al- 
ways been the policy of the Directors even in poor and we may 
say disgracefully poor quarters to carry out all the most modern 
details connected with the care of infants in the best way and 
based on the highest standards. They are therefore about to es- 
tablish in connection with the Women's Municipal League, a sys- 
tem of visiting the babies in their homes after they have left the 



14 

Hospital. This will be done by a trained nurse whose salary will 
be paid for the first year by the League, who hope that a sufficient 
annual fund can in a year be raised to enable the Hospital to 
carry on this very important work itself. About ;^2,ooo a year 
will cover the expenses of the nurse, and the proper feeding of 
the babies in their homes- Subscriptions for this fund can be 
forwarded to Mrs. William Lowell Putnam for the Infants Social 
Service) 49 Beacon Street, Boston. At the request of Mrs. Put- 
nam I have inserted in my report the following statement explan- 
atory of this new and much needed work : 

" The Women's Municipal League in connection with the In- 
fants Hospital is starting an experiment in social service for in- 
fants, — its object being not only to try to prevent the present 
high rate of infant mortality, but to raise the standard of health 
of the men and women of the future, by improving that of the 
babies of to-day. For this purpose there will be a clinic for both the 
well and the sick babies, and the mothers will be visited and given 
personal instruction in their homes. The League will be very 
grateful for any funds subscribed for this purpose." 

The arrangement made with the Faulkner Hospital, Jamaica 
Plain, to supply two nurses each term has proved a success and will 
be continued the coming year. 

The Post-Graduate Course for Nurses and the Training School 
for Nursery Maids have been even more successful than in former 
years. 

The Directors offer their grateful thanks for the efficient ser- 
vice to the Hospital Medical and Surgical officers, to Miss Helen 
W. Aubin the Assistant Secretary, to Miss Farquharthe Hospital 
Superintendent, and to Miss Austin the Head Nurse. 

A number of entertainments have been given by the Committee 
on Ways and Means. The Directors appreciate all that they 
have done and offer to them and to the Ladies' Aid Society their 
gratitude; they also wish to thank the House Committee and the 
Visitors to the Wards for their kindly interest and help.

Medical Director.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



In presenting the report for the year 1909 the Medical Director 
feels that the work of the Hospital is so well known and the med- 
ical interests connected with it so well understood, that it is 
hardly worth the while to repeat what has so often been said in 
previous reports. 

The work of the Hospital is primarily to receive and treat med- 
ical diseases occurring in human beings in the first two years of 
life. This work is not duplicated in its completeness of instruc- 
tion to physicians, nurses and nursery maids anywhere else in 
New England, and yet this by no means represents an absence of 
the necessity of such work being carried on or that the small 
quarters which our present Hospital provides for the work is suf- 
ficient. On the contrary, what it does represent is the existence 
of an anomaly which the people of New England and especially of 
Boston in no way recognize, and therefore apparently make no 
effort to remove from our midst. 

It is certainly anomalous that while the preservation of the 
early life of human beings is a manifest necessity, both from a 
humanitarian and an utilitarian point of view, no organized or 
concentrated effort has been made in this community to provide 
means for carrying out this preservation. It is the duty of every 
community to care for its young as well as for its old, and there 
are many instances throughout the country, especially in the 
larger cities, of finely equipped hospitals devoted to infants. It is 
also especially significant that in all these different hospitals the 
physicians and nurses speak of a supposed completely equipped 
hospital in Boston, where the first Infants' Hospital was opened. 
It is true that the first hospital devoted entirely to babies was 
opened in Boston in January, 1881, nearly thirty years ago, and 
that this institution was the pioneer in investigations relating to 
early life. The present Hospital building is sadly inadequate for 
the increasing work, it is old and out of repair, the wards are 
small, and during the summer months owing to the surroundings 
which are congested, we are obliged to close the wards; under 
these circumstances it is evident that something must be done 
and done at once. 

About ;^40,ooo or 1^50,000 more are needed to put up the new 
Memorial building on the ground which has been bought by the 



13 

Trustees of a fund given for this purpose, and the Trustees have 
decided to put up the outside of the building, and the work will be 
begun in March. It is hoped when there is something tangible 
and something which will represent the money which has been 
given for the new Hospital, that friends will come forward and 
help finish the building. The memorial building should represent 
something more than a mere hospital, there are certain classes in 
the community who take very little interest in sick babies, but 
who are deeply interested in all that pertains to early life whether 
in the kindergarten or schools or mills; there are others who are 
interested in the study and adaptation of the various questions re- 
lating to the feeding and care of the young in health. 

With a view to satisfying the necessity for establishing some 
educational centre where all questions relating to early life can be 
studied and given out to the public, the Trustees have decided to 
make this Memorial building such an educational centre. There 
is to be in it a library devoted entirely to information on all sub- 
jects relating to babies, there is also to be a model milk labora- 
tory, a room especially devoted to the care of premature inf mts, 
a model nursery, a special research laboratory, and a lecture room 
furnished with all the modern apparatus for teaching and investi- 
gation. 

The plans for the entire building, inside and out, equipped for 
the above purposes having been carefully studied, are now in the 
architect's hands, and we trust that the balance needed to com- 
plete the building will be forthcoming when we are ready to fin- 
ish the interior. 

It is with sincere regret that we announce the deaths of three 
members of the Corporation duirng the past year. Rev. Edward 
Everett Hale, Mr. Causten Browne, and Mrs. Charles Head. Mr. 
Browne had been a member ever since the year 1884, Dr. Hale 
was elected in 1885, and Mrs. Head in 1886. Mrs. Head was one 
of the first members of the Ladies* Aid Society, and has always 
been a kind friend to the Hospital. 

The Directors wish to express their appreciation of the efforts 
of the ladies who have just made such a success of the Christmas 
sale under the direction of Mrs. William B. Wheelwright, and 
until the income of the Hospital is larger the Directors have de- 
cided to have regularly each year a sale at Christmastime and a 
fair before Easter. 

The Directors offer their sincere thanks to the members of the 
Medical and Surgical Staff for their efficient service, also for their 
cordial co-operation and helpful work to the Ladies' Aid Society, 
the House Committee, the Visitors in the Wards and the Com- 
mittee on Ways and Means. 



14 

The Directors recognize the great difficulties which arise in the 
administration of the Hospital through the cramped quarters and 
the lack of proper equipment; they therefore feel that especial 
thanks and recognition of their difficult work so well performed 
are due to Miss Aubin and Miss Farquhar. 

Dr. William P. Lucas, Medical Director of the Milk Fund, 
makes the following statement regarding that work : 

Of all the many helpful agencies which are carried on in con- 
nection with the Out-patient Department, there is none perhaps 
more far-reaching in its results than the work done by the Milk 
Fund. This Fund supplies modified milk to babies from poor 
homes, not only during the hot weather but to a continually in- 
creasing extent throughout the entire year. This Fund has a wide 
field of usefulness as it is the only means that the Out-patient 
Department of this Hospital, as well as that of the Children's 
Hospital, has of providing, free of charge, the best modified milk 
for sick babies and for the difficult feeding cases which could not 
live without this aid. There is an urgent demand, felt in all our 
Infant clinics, for the logical extension of the activities of this 
Fund in the securing of a visiting nurse to increase the efficiency 
of the work. This is greatly to be desired in the summer months 
when so many very sick babies are given the benefit of this Fund. 
These babies are given the best milk possible, but it is often im- 
perative that further supervision be carried into the homes where 
there is so often absolute ignorance of how to care for a sick 
baby, or how to keep the milk from contamination after its 
delivery. 

During the past year this Fund has been able to supply milk 
to over 300 sick babies, and to assist many others that were diffi- 
cult to feed without the assistance of the modified milk supplied 
by this Fund. A very large proportion of the parents are willing 
to pay in part for the milk and the money so collected has been 
used for the further extension of the work. Funds for this work 
have been raised by liberal subscriptions in response to appeals 
sent out by the Trustees of the Milk Fund, and it is hoped that 
its patrons will continue to support its work by increased giving 
and by interesting others to help this Fund to meet the larger 
opportunities for work. 

The following tables show the diseases treated in the Wards 
during the year.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



Another year has gone by and the Hospital, still in its old, 
crowded, ill-equipped quarters, is carrying on its certainly won- 
derful work, considering the very unfavorable surroundings from 
which this work has emanated. It should be noted, explained to 
the corporation, and impressed upon the public, that the time is 
coming when the present hospital buildings will have to be 
evacuated on account of a stage having been reached when repairs 
will be impossible. The life-saving work carried on in these old 
buildings has far outgrown the Hospital capacity, and if the In- 
fants' Hospital is to continue to exist and to retain the important 
place which it has held among public charities for so many years, 
renewed efforts should be made by its friends, to aid in raising 
funds for its removal to a location better adapted to the prolonga- 
tion of its life. 

Such strong pressure has been brought to bear upon the Trus- 
tees of the Memorial Fund by the donors and others interested in 
the Hospital, to begin the Hospital at once, that the Trustees 
have decided to erect the outside of the building. This decision 
has been ratified by the Directors of the Hospital, and the opinion 
seems to prevail that this action is wise and that the funds for 
completing the Hospital will be forthcoming later. The ground 
has been broken for the new building, and closely following this 
starting of the Hospital the first one thousand dollars, towards 
increasing the building fund, has been received. 

During the past year ten nurses have received diplomas from 
the post-graduate course. An opportunity is given in the medical 
and surgical departments for nurses, who have already been gradu- 
ated from general hospitals, to receive instruction and to become 
experienced in the care of sick infants and children. Twenty 
lectures are given by the physicians and surgeons of the staff to 
the nurses each term. Thirteen nursery maids have finished their 
course of training in the care of well babies. These maids are 
evidenjily highly appreciated by the public, as the demand is 
greater than the supply. In the new Hospital provision will be 
made for the accommodation of a much larger number of nursery 



13 

maids than is possible in the small quarters of the present 
building. 

The number of infants admitted to the Hospital wards during 
the year 1910 was 289, while the total number of visits to the 
Out-Patient Department amounted to 14,969, being 800 more 
than occurred in 1909. 

While the care and relief of suffering of the poor must always 
be the primary object in our Hospital management, yet it should 
be noted that this small Hospital is doing a very large work in 
the teaching of physicians and medical students, and ill equipped 
as it is, it has made a great reputation for itself in regard to ad- 
vancing all questions connected with early life. 

A special clinic is held in the Hospital for the instruction of 
mothers in the simple principles of hygiene, the babies of these 
mothers having already been in the Hospital wards. They are 
instructed to bring their babies as often as once in two weeks to 
be looked over by the physician in charge, and advice is given to 
them as to the best means of keeping them well. 

A great work is carried on throughout the year, but mostly in 
the summer, in connection with the children who are brought to 
the Out-Patient Department. This work, with its far-reaching 
results, is accomplished by means of what is called the Milk Fund. 
Through this fund the best milk, modified according to the needs 
of the especial child, is provided free of cost to all those who are 
found worthy of this charity. It is to be noted, however, that 
almost universally the parents are able and willing to pay a small 
price for this food. In addition to providing this milk, the effi- 
ciency of the treatment has been greatly increased by the em- 
ployment of a skilled, trained visiting nurse. This nurse super- 
vises the care of the milk after it has been received in the homes, 
where there is often absolute ignorance of how to care for a sick 
baby. The nurse also instructs the mothers in the general hygiene 
which should be carried out in their homes in connection with 
the care of sick babies, and there is no question but that many 
lives are saved which would otherwise be sacrificed to conditions 
which can be obviated by the knowledge brought to bear upon 
them by the nurse. The funds for this work come from liberal 
subscribers in response to appeals sent out by the Trustees of the 
Milk Fund. It is hoped that its patrons by explaining to their 
friends, the new portion of this work represented by the nurse's 
supervision, may interest others to help by giving to the Fund, 
and thus provide larger opportunities for this important work. 

The Directors wish to recognize especially what has been done 
by the ladies in connection with the annual fair, and to present 
their thanks and appreciation of the arduous work which they 



14 

have so devotedly done, under the able direction of Mrs. Charles 
Harrington. The Directors also wish to thank the committee of 
ladies who, under the direction of Mrs. William B. Wheelwright, 
conducted the Christmas sale. The Directors offer their sincere 
thanks to the members of the Medical and Surgical Staff for their 
efficient services, also for the cordial co-operation and helpful 
work of the Ladies* Aid Society, the Hospital Committee, the 
Visitors to the Wards, and of the Committee on Ways and Means. 
The difficulties arising from the administration of the Hospital 
are so great that the Directors feel that especial thanks for and 
appreciation of their difficult work are due to Miss Aubin, Assis- 
tant Secretary, and to Miss Farquhar, Hospital Superintendent. 

The following friends, who have helped us by their kindly in- 
terest and gifts, have died during the past year : Mrs. H. A. Rice, 
Mrs. F. C. Wilson, Henry S. Grew, and Charles Thorndike. 

The following tables show the diseases treated in the Wards

INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

ON the 24th of May, 191 1, a meeting was held at the 
Harvard Medical School, in behalf of a new hos- 
pital building for infants, then undergoing construdtion. 
Of such great interest and value were the addresses made 
that it is deemed advisable to preserve them, and for this 
purpose this report is published. As a preface to the re- 
port, a word of explanation might not be out of place. 

More than ten years ago a fund was subscribed by 
generous and charitable persons for the purpose of ered:- 
ing and maintaining an adequate and suitable hospital for 
the care of infants. In 1904 a part of the fund was used 
to purchase from Harvard College a lot of land near the 
Harvard Medical School, the most pradtical and logical 
situation for an institution of this character. 

A building adapted to the surroundings, modern and 
adequate in every respe6l, was planned by the architects, 
Messrs. Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge, after consultation with 
eminent medical authorities, but it was found that the cost 
would be far in excess of the sum subscribed. For this rea- 
son construction was postponed. After long and earnest 
consideration, however, it was decided to eredl so much of 
the building as the fund on hand would permit, with the 
hope that the generous public, when it appreciated the im- 
portance of the work undertaken, would subscribe suffi- 
cient funds to complete the hospital. That this hospital 
building is a necessity, and that it should be completed and 
maintained, was earnestly set forth in the addresses by the 
speakers at the meeting of May 24th; and for the reasons 

[ ■ ] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

why it IS a necessity and why it should be completed and 
maintained, the reader is respedlfully referred to the report 
of these addresses. 

The Infants' Hospital, a charitable corporation organ- 
ized in 1 88 1, which, by its worthy and important work in 
ill-adapted and inadequate quarters on Blossom Street, has 
proved its right to a new home, will occupy the building 
when finished. Here the work of this invaluable institution, 
aided by the modern facilities of the new plant, and by the 
close association and cooperation of the Medical School 
and the other hospitals in the vicinity, can be carried on 
with far greater success. Here, also, the little patients can 
be cared for during the hot summer months — an impossi- 
bility in the present quarters. 

As a result of the meeting of May 24th, together with 
circulars sent to a large number of persons, subscriptions 
towards the fund for the new building, and purposes con- 
nected therewith, have been received, amounting on Odo- 
ber 15, 191 1, to $27,500. These generous contributions 
together with the original fund will pay for the work al- 
ready ordered. The outside walls and roof have been com- 
pleted, the rough flooring has been laid, the partitions, 
rough plumbing, heating, and electrical work are now being 
installed. The remaining funds, however, are not sufficient 
to justify further contracts, and unless donations are re- 
ceived in the near future, the work must temporarily cease. 
This, of course, will mean greater expense. In order to 
complete the building as now planned, an additional sum 
of $100,000 is needed. Of this sum $5000 has already 
been subscribed, on condition that the balance is paid in

INTRODUCTORY NOTE 

by June, 191 2. A very serious and determined effort is 
being made to obtain subscriptions, and all persons are ear- 
nestly requested to send in donations to Messrs. Kidder^ Peabody 
y Company^ 'Temporary Treasurers, 115 Devonshire Street, 
Boston. 



Persons desiring to subscribe towards any specific portion of 
the new building, with a view to having such portion desig- 
nated as a memorial^ or persons wishing to have their dona- 
tions held in any special manner, as part of the endowment 
fund, may receive further information by communicating with 
the Secretary, Henry W, Palmer, 709 Exchange Building,

ADDRESSES 

President A. Lawrence Lowell of Harvard University^ 
who presided at this meetings spoke as follows : 

LADIES AND Gentlemen: We come here in the interest 
J of the new building of the Infants' Hospital, and we 
come with a faith that a close association of that building 
with the Medical School is of mutual benefit. We believe 
that, because we believe that the results to be attained are 
of the utmost value not only to the children who are com- 
ing to the hospital now, but also to the children who will 
come there in future years. In other words, the hospital 
being built for the poor children, the sick children, of the 
community, it is our duty to manage it not only to relieve 
the children who are now sick, but so as to perfect the 
knowledge of children's diseases in order that we may dp 
even more for the children of future generations. 

This we believe can be brought about in no way so well 
as by a close connexion with this Medical School ; by hav- 
ing the children near all the knowledge that this school 
contains, with the laboratories of this school at the disposal 
of the hospital. This also gives the professors chance to 
study diseases, and to learn more about them. 

Now the ground for the hospital has been purchased, 
the outside walls have been ere6led, but the hospital is not 
completed, and its equipment needs still to be furnished 
before it can be used. We have made a start, the best possi- 
ble start, but only a start, and not a finish. 

I will now ask Dr. J. Collins Warren to tell us about 
the conditions of this hospital. 

[4] 



ADDRESS BY DR. WARREN 



DR. WARREN S ADDRESS 



LADIES AND Gentlemen: It is a great pleasure to me 
J to be able to respond to the call made in behalf of 
the Infants' Hospital, for this occasion has to me a special 
significance, marking as it does the beginning of the final 
consummation of the plan we have had in mind since the 
first steps were taken to establish a great medical centre 
in this city; for this is the first of the group of hospitals 
to be eredled around the Medical School, and to be inti- 
mately associated with it and its work. Therefore it gives 
us renewed hope to feel that this great medical enterprise 
will be carried out successfully along the lines originally 
planned. 

But this hospital has special features of interest of its 
own which demand our attention to-day, for it differs from 
nearly all other hospitals in the peculiar character of its 
work. I regard it, therefore, as a feature of special interest 
in the hospital group, for it is to be a place not only where 
infants under two years of age are to be nursed and cured, 
as are patients in other hospitals, but it is to be dedicated 
also to the study of the many delicate and serious problems 
in that period known as early life. 

In this resped it resembles a new type of hospital now 
known as the "Observation Hospital," which, while, like 
other hospitals, it still continues to relieve human sufli^er- 
ing, is so organized that it is able to concern itself at the 
same time with the study and causes of disease in an eflFort 
to advance materially the security of human life. 

The work of the Department of Pediatrics of the Har- 

[5] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

vard Medical School has been of an exceptionally high 
grade, and its publications have been numerous and of such 
a charader as to give it a national reputation. It has been 
tinged from the beginning with the sacred fire of original- 
ity, which has enabled it to accomplish valuable pioneer 
work and to point the diredlion of a new departure in the 
management and care of little children, both in this coun- 
try and in Europe. Under the leadership of its distinguished 
head. Dr. Thomas Morgan Rotch, it has devoted itself to 
many intensely interesting problems, most conspicuous of 
which is the question of infant nutrition. 

Those of us whose children have reached mature years 
can look back upon times in which the carrying of the 
small members of the family through those five years of 
dangerwas far more complicated than it is to-day. It should 
ever be remembered that it is due especially to the work 
of this department that the new order of things has been 
introduced. I am well aware that the opinion of young 
mothers is by no means unanimous as to the benefit of 
certain types of laboratory milk. But no one will question 
that the whole situation is on an entirely diflTerent plane 
from what it was a generation ago. It may be that our 
ideas (and it is hoped that it will be the case) will change 
materially from those that are now considered authorita- 
tive, but it must not be forgotten that the old regime has 
gone and that a better one is taking its place. 

Another of the problems which has interested me espe- 
cially is the study of the development of the child, more 
particularly with reference to the child labor question. This 
department has not been content with the old methods of 

[6] 



ADDRESS BY DR. WARREN 

ascertaining data from birth certificates, but has taken the 
child itself as the source of information as to its capacity 
for endurance. You are all doubtless aware that the growth 
of the child depends upon the growth of the long bones, 
and the growth of the long bones depends upon the adliv- 
ity of a thin line of tissue placed between the shaft and 
cap of the bone. The epiphyseal line is now the objedt 
of an intensive study. Familiarity with its appearance dur- 
ing its lesser or greater adlivity, by means of the Roentgen 
ray, enables the observer to recognize the difference between 
the growth of a vigorous child and a weakling. Observa- 
tions of this character are now being worked out in vari- 
ous parts of the country and by special permission of the 
government at Annapolis, and are bringing about most 
valuable results. 

I mention these two types of investigation as examples 
of the work being done by this department, both as to its 
far-reaching character and its importance upon the great 
problems for the protection of this tender period of life. 

Some twenty years ago, when one of a committee to raise 
money for the rebuilding of the Boston Lying-in Hospital 
on McLean Street, I called to the attention of fathers and 
mothers of that period that if they gave help to establish 
such an institution as that upon a modern basis, it would 
not only care for the many poor and suffering women who 
are unable to care for themselves at the supreme moment, 
but would educate a staff of expert pradlitioners who would 
become a valuable asset to the city of Boston, and would 
serve as a protection to the new generation of mothers, both 
rich and poor, from the perils of childbirth. How success- 

[7] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

fully the plan which was then evolved has been carried out 
is a matter of public knowledge, to which I need hardly 
more than call your attention. 

I feel that we are meeting with a somewhat similar situ- 
ation here to-day, and if we build this temple, dedicated to 
infant life, and equip it with all the most modern machinery 
for fighting disease, we shall not only alleviate a vast amount 
of suffering, but we shall train a regiment of expert physi- 
cians who will be forever on guard to proted our children 
and grandchildren from the lurking foes of disease. And 
while the little babies are growing, the fathers and mothers 
can sleep peacefully in their beds, untortured by many of 
the anxieties which were the lot of the preceding generation. 

President Lowell: Dr. Warren has told us about the 
medical side. There is also another side. A number of years 
ago a highly respedled gentleman in Boston refused to sub- 
scribe to an infant asylum on the ground that it preserved 
life that had better not be preserved. There is only one 
difficulty with this : it is that we have reached a moral stage 
when we must assume as the basis of our civilization the 
sacredness of human life. We cannot inquire to-day who 
is fit, and who is not fit, to live. 

I will call upon Bishop Lawrence to speak to us on 
the moral side of this matter. 

BISHOP Lawrence's address 

IT is interesting to note how rescue work in all moral and 
elevating lines catches people, catches them by their 
emotions ; yet we all appreciate that educational work is far 

[8] 



ADDRESS BY BISHOP LAWRENCE 

more important. This Infants' Hospital, while it strikes the 
note of rescue, strikes more strongly the note of education. 

I want first, as the father of children, to bear my testi- 
mony to the value in my own family of the preparations 
of milk whose invention can be traced to this hospital or 
to those who have served here. When one thinks of the 
advantages that have come diredtly through the Infants* 
Hospital, its directors, physicians, and president, and then 
realizes that, while those mothers who can afford it are feed- 
ing their infants safely through the summer months, the 
Infants' Hospital is closed, our sympathies are aroused. 

In many pidures of the Holy Family we see the Infant 
Jesus in the centre enshrouded with light, or with light 
breaking from the manger, illumining the Family, the 
strangers, and the cattle. True to fad, is it not? in this 
twentieth century, the infant the centre of the household. 
Whether it be the first, fourth, or seventh child, the whole 
family centre around the youngest, and if the little child is 
full of life and elasticity, every member responds, but if 
the baby is sick, the hearts of all sink. A working-man does 
poorer work all day because he left the baby ailing. And 
the children as they return from school feel it: their mother 
cannot give them the attention they ought to have; they 
lose a certain amount of mothering because the baby is sick, 
— the baby is the centre. Therefore, anything that goes 
towards the health, the upbuilding, and the happiness of 
the baby, goes towards the strength of the whole family. 
We want to keep this clearly in mind, so that when we think 
of the Infants' Hospital we shall think at the same time 
of twenty, fifty, or one hundred families, each a bit stronger 

[9] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

because in the hospital or through the skill of its physi- 
cians the baby is gaining strength. 

The other thought I have in mind is this, that ever since 
the Holy Family and its day, ever since the birth of Jesus, 
there has come into the world a new appreciation of the 
sacredness of childhood. Whether the little child lives a 
week or until he is fifty, he has an eternity of development, 
an individuality of soul that we cannot check or measure. 
Everything that goes towards the development of the body, 
mind, or spirit goes towards the development of the whole 
life; and no one of us can fathom the meaning of the 
life. Important as is child life from the economic and social 
standpoint, its real significance is in its sacredness and 
immortal outlook. 

President Lowell : No one has any question but that this 
building is as well adapted for its purposes as the building 
now occupied is ill adapted. The present building is unin- 
habitable in summer, and yet you know that the summer 
is the time of greatest infant mortality. 

I will now ask President Eliot to speak to us. 

ADDRESS OF DR. CHARLES W. ELIOT 

THE Infants' Hospital has carried on for many years 
a work of great value to this community ; but it has 
never had a proper building, and its endowment has been 
very small. Its present building is wholly inadequate in 
size; and it is so situated at the West End that it is im- 
possible to keep it open in summer, the very season when 
the hospital could do the most good. What an advantage 

[ 10 ] 



ADDRESS BY CHARLES W. ELIOT 

It would be to the beneficent working of the institution if 
this new building could at once receive all the little patients 
that are now at Blossom Street; and if the work of the hos- 
pital could at once be carried on all the year round, as will 
be possible on this new, airy site, in close proximity to the 
Medical School! What a pity it seems that the life-saving 
work of this hospital should always have been crippled by 
lack of money, and that it has never had an adequate build- 
ing, or any suitable foundation ! Nevertheless, the Infants' 
Hospital has not only relieved much suffering and saved 
many lives, but in connexion with the Department of Pedi- 
atrics in the Harvard Medical School, it has been during 
the past twenty years a source of genuine medical progress 
in regard to the care and feeding of infants. 

I want to say a few words about the preventive work 
which the Infants' Hospital has done in this community. 
The hospital contends against one of the most terrible 
evils which afflid modern society, namely, the horrible in- 
fant mortality during the first and second years of life. We 
may say roughly that fifteen per cent of all infants born in 
Massachusetts die during their first year, the mortality 
being highest in the first few weeks of life, and higher in 
the first year than in the second year. We may get some 
idea of what this mortality means to the community, if we 
imagine for a moment what it would mean to have the 
same rate of mortality among children go on for a few years 
more. If the fifteen per cent mortality of the first year con- 
tinued through the first Hvt years, more than half of all 
the children born on the assumed date would be dead; and 
more than two-thirds of the infants born on the assumed 

[ " ] 



THE INFANTS* HOSPITAL 

date would be dead within seven years. The survivors to 
adult life would be but an insignificant fradion. Such is the 
gravity of the present adlual rate of infant mortality. 

What are the evils which cause this formidable destruc- 
tion of infant life? They are the congestion of population, 
and the diminution of breast-feeding among American 
women. These are the two evils which cause this terrible 
infant mortality. Against both of them the Infants' Hospi- 
tal has been contending for years, and contending with a 
fair means of success ; but every one who has known its his- 
tory is perfedly aware that the work of the hospital has 
been limited because it has been carried on in the midst of 
a much congested population, and in a building very ill- 
fitted for its work. Much admirable scientific work has been 
done by the physicians of the hospital in inventing toler- 
ably safe substitutes for mother's milk, and in studying the 
modification of cow's milk most available in each individual 
case. In this way the hospital has mitigated the great evil of 
the diminution of breast-feeding. In conjund:ion with kin- 
dred institutions, the Infants' Hospital and the Department 
of Pediatrics of the Harvard Medical School have had great 
success in developing tolerably safe methods of feeding 
infants artificially. They have stimulated breast-feeding, and 
diminished the risks of bottle-feeding. 

These evils, against which the Infants' Hospital has con- 
tended, are comparatively new. The congestion of popula- 
tion was greatly promoted by the fadlory system, which is 
not yet three generations old in this country. The general 
adoption of bottle-feeding among people of American stock 
is even more recent. Medical science is constantly bringing 

[ .2 ] 



ADDRESS BY CHARLES W. ELIOT 

new forces into play against new evils ; and this is a process 
which is likely to go on generation after generation. That 
is just what preventive medicine has been doing in good 
part during the past forty years. We must not be discour- 
aged if great social changes bring with them dangers and 
exposures before unimagined. The courageous and devoted 
man of science grapples with the new evils, and in time finds 
means of resisting them. The educated public must firmly 
resolve to strengthen the hands of all men and institutions 
that contend against new evils as they arise. This is just 
what the Infants' Hospital has been doing, and hopes to 
do. The public which is intelligent enough to appreciate 
its work ought to provide it, first, with an ample building 
fully equipped, and secondly, with an endowment sufficient 
to secure the permanence of the work, always expanding in 
quantity and improving in quality. The institution ought 
not to be completely dependent on annual subscriptions 
of uncertain amount; it ought to be enabled to pursue its 
admirable work with steadiness and a just assurance of 
continuity and durability. 

While the Infants' Hospital has been doing this admir- 
able work of rescue and relief, it has been performing another 
fundlion of high value to the community. It has given 
thorough instruction concerning the care of infants, sick 
or well, normal or abnormal, to a long series of students 
of medicine, nurses, and physicians; and through its pupils 
has exerted a widespread and very beneficent influence in 
this and many other communities. This important fundlion 
the Infants' Hospitalwill be enabled to discharge more eff^ec- 
tively whenever it can begin to use its new building. Every 

[•3] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

hospital should discharge this educational fundlion, and in 
discharging it should produce living models of all that is best 
in the nurse, the physician, and the surgeon. The Infants' 
Hospital has rendered much of this noble service. In this 
enlightened community it ought to be enabled through 
ample gifts of money to render even more. 

In conclusion President Lowell said: It is not only the 
children whose lives are saved in this hospital that we have 
to think of; it is not only the mothers of those children; 
it is not only the far larger number of children visited by the 
physicians and nurses; it is the benefit to all generations of 
the knowledge how to save human life. For the slaughter 
of innocents that goes on year by year, and that medical 
skill might diminish, we as members of the community are 
responsible in so far as we have power to prevent it.

EXTRACT FROM MR. BARTLETT'S LETTER 

THE following extrad: from a letter to the Editor 
of the "Boston Transcript" by Nelson S. Bartlett, 
Treasurer, published in June, will be of interest to those 
who care to know something of the financial status and 
progress of the Infants* Hospital: 

"The hospital has made distind: financial progress dur- 
ing the past sixteen years, as is shown by the increase in 
its invested funds. Its work has made an appeal to the 
charitable, with the result that there have been received 
gifts of considerable amounts, generally bequests, more than 
half of which were given with no restridlion as to the use 
of the principal. The endeavor has been to preserve these 
larger unrestridled gifts for investment, and not allow the 
annual expenses to encroach upon them. This has been 
only partially accomplished, but with the help of fairs and 
entertainments and the coming of friends to the rescue at 
critical times, any disastrous demand on the unrestrided 
investment funds has been avoided. 

"In 1894, when the writer became treasurer, the hos- 
pital owned the buildings it occupied on Blossom Street, 
the present taxable value of which is ^20,300. The mar- 
ket value of securities they then owned was say ^6000 to 
$7000, with an income from the same of apparently less 
than |200 per annum. There were also a few thousand 
dollars in legacy money which had not been colleded. 
To-day the hospital, in addition to the Blossom Street 
property, owns four houses in Seabury Place, adjoining the 
hospital, bought with the idea, now abandoned, of rebuild- 

[ >5] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

ing in that location. These cost $15,800. The real estate 
in Blossom Street and Seabury Place (which is free of all 
mortgage debt) has a taxable value of $29,900. The pres- 
ent valuation of the invested funds of the hospital amounts 
to about $96,000, which will yield an income this year of 
something over $4000. 

"The foregoing statement, which leaves entirely out of 
consideration the special building fund, shows a very de- 
cent financial progress, which, it is hoped, will be an argu- 
ment in the hospital's favor with the charitable. With the 
unrestrided investment funds as an anchor to windward, 
the hospital has kept at a safe distance from all financial 
rocks, while facing the disturbing fadl of an insufficiency 
of assured income. As to this matter of income, present 
or future, important as it may be, it is secondary in im- 
portance to the work in hand — which is to raise money 
enough to finish and equip the new hospital building, with- 
out encroaching upon any of the hospital's assets, beyond 
the special building fund. When this is accomplished, it 
will be in order to consider the question of income with 
which to maintain the new hospital.

DESCRIPTION OF NEW BUILDING 

THE new fire-proof building of white marble, designed 
to correspond with the Harvard Medical School build- 
ings nearby, faces south on Van Dyke Street, standing west 
of the Administration Building. Patients entering on the 
east side pass into the Reception and Waiting Rooms in 
the Basement, from which, after examination, they can easily 
be removed to the proper wards. 

Other rooms of importance on the Basement floor be- 
sides the Kitchen, Dining-rooms, and Servants' Rooms, 
are the Research Laboratory, where important investiga- 
tions will be conduced, the Model Laundry made neces- 
sary by the great amount of washing connected with an In- 
fants' Hospital, the Retention Ward, and the Sterilizing 
Milk Laboratory. There is also an Isolation Ward, which is 
effedively separated from the remainder of the building. 

The visitor entering the building from Van Dyke Street 
passes through the main entrance into the large and well- 
lighted main hall. At the right through large windows he 
sees the Model Nursery, a room where valuable instru6lion 
will be given to mothers as well as to nurses and doctors. 
From the right towards the rear of the main hall the visitor 
sees the Milk Modifying Room, an important feature of 
the building. Turning to the left he passes the staircase 
occupying the central portion of the rear of the main hall, 
and arrives at the entrance to the large Library, which will 
contain all the valuable literature on subjedls pertaining to 
the feeding and care of infants. This library will be open 
to the public. 

[ ■?] 



THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

On the remainder of the first floor the visitor will find 
many other rooms of general utility, and in the southeast 
corner he may visit the room devoted entirely to the care 
of premature babies. 

On the second floor will be found two large Wards, 
accommodating twenty-five babies each, running the full 
length of the front portion of the building, with sun rooms 
at the ends. On this floor, also, will be the Operating and 
Sterilizing Rooms for the treatment of patients who are 
inmates of the hospital, a Roentgen Ray Room, and a Lec- 
ture Room fully equipped with appliances for illustrating 
ledlures on topics connedled with early life, in which it is 
planned to give instruction not only to nurses and dodors, 
but also to mothers. 

One unique feature of the building is the arrangement 
of the top floor, where rooms for private patients and sleep- 
ing-rooms for nurses will be situated. The walls of this story 
are set in ten feet from the lines of the main building, thus 
leaving an open space or corridor running around the out- 
side. This provides an excellent outdoor sleeping space for 
the babies, and can also be used as a roof garden, especially 
during the hot months of summer. 

From the above description it is apparent that a large 
portion of this new building will be devoted to educational 
purposes, making this hospital not only a place for the 
relief of suflFering babies, but also a centre of teaching and 
information available to all who wish to learn.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



In reviewing the work which has been done in, and the influence 
for good which has emanated from, the hospital during the past year, 
much is to be noted. When we appreciate the cramped and inade- 
quate quarters in the midst of which so much has been done to lower 
the rate of infant mortality, we cannot but be struck with the variety 
of its interests and the importance of the position which our hospital 
has held for years and is still markedly holding in the community. 

It is here that both parents and physicians, not only from the im- 
mediate neighborhood, but from the outlying districts, come for advice 
on all subjects connected with early life, and we may say that in no 
other institution is more courteous, kind and friendly attention given 
to all inquiries. This is something to be proud of in these days of 
ever-increasing system and routine organization in our hospitals, 
which, while increasing their efficiency, tends to interfere with their 
friendly relations with the outside public seeking advice not strictly 
medical. 

Two hundred and seventy-two babies have been treated in the 
wards during the past year, and two thousand, six hundred and sixty- 
eight new cases in children of all ages, representing with the old cases 
fourteen thousand, six hundred and sixty-three visits, have been 
treated in the Out-Patient department. These numbers, however, do 
not by any means entirely represent the great work which the hospital 
is carrying on. Throughout the year efficient service has been done 
by a trained, especially detailed, nurse in their homes after the babies 
have left the hospital. This means a great deal from several points 
of view. For instance, there is a much greater chance for the perma- 
nent recovery of the sick baby, when it leaves the hospital, if it can 
be under the supervision of a nurse trained not only to look after its 
food, but to instruct the entire family in the general hygiene of the 
home. In this way, also, a great step is taken in the prevention of 
disease. 



The attention of those who are interested in infant welfare has 
been centred during the past year on the progress which is being 
made in the erection of the new hospital and in the efforts which 
have been called forth for its completion. On the 24th of May a 
reception was held at the Harvard Medical School, and appeals were 
made for funds to finish the building. On this occasion it was shown 
by President Lowell, Bishop Lawrence, Dr. J. Collins Warren, and 
President Emeritus Eliot, that something more than a humanitarian 
project was asking for help. They explained how the new hospital 
was to be an educational centre, where everything pertaining to early 
life would be studied ; how, also, there was to be a library devoted 
to child life, and open to all who have an interest in the reduction of 
infant mortality. A liberal response followed this appeal, but a 
large sum still remains to be subscribed before the hospital can be 
equipped for occupation. The exterior of the building has been com- 
pleted, also the rough interior. The financial condition as it now 
stands will be given in the report of the Building and Maintenance 
Committee. 

The Milk Fund, as usual, has been dispensed from the hospital as 
the chief centre, and especial research work on infant mortality has 
been carried on by members of the staff, thus widening the sphere of 
the hospital's usefulness. 

Diplomas have been given to eleven graduate nurses and to fourteen 
nursery maids during the past year. The public is showing its ap- 
proval of their joint training by its demand for a still greater number 
of nursery maids, as shown by a considerable waiting list. 

The Directors appreciate greatly the aid given to the running of the 
hospital by those friends who, on April 23rd, gave a pop concert and 
a bridge tournament. The Directors offer their sincere thanks to the 
members of the Medical and Surgical Staff for their efficient services 
under most adverse conditions. The Directors present their thanks 
to the Ladies' Aid for its devotion to the work of supplying the hos- 
pital needs, and also to the Visitors to the Wards for their unfailing 
support. Especial mention should be made of the interest in the 
hospital finances, which the Ways and Means Committee has been 
taking, and of its efforts to increase the annual income. Appreciative 
thanks are offered to a number of ladies who gave money to buy six 
new cribs. 

The Directors wish to draw the attention of the Corporation to the 
fact that the annual expense for repairs is becoming greater on account 



14 

of the age of the buildings. To offset this expense the list of annual 
subscribers should be increased by the personal efforts of all who are 
interested in the hospital. It is evident, also, that funds for finishing 
the new building should be continually solicited, as the old buildings 
will soon be beyond repair. 

It is with great regret that I have to record the loss to the hospital, 
by death, of the following members of the Corporation : Mr. H. 
Garrettson Spooner, Mrs. Francis I. Amory, Mrs. J. Arthur Beebe, 
and Mrs. E. V. R. Thayer; also that of the following friends and 
subscribers : Mr. F. B. Greene, Mrs. James M. Barnard, Mrs. Samuel 
Torrey Morse, Miss Sarah E. Read, Mr. B. S. Turner, Mrs. O. F. 
Wadsworth, Mr. Godfrey Morse, Mrs. Davies Wilson, Mrs. Samuel 
H. Winkley, and Dr. Charles G. Weld. 

The difficulties of administration, arising from the limited expendi- 
ture allowed and from the lack of proper accommodations, have been 
so great that especial praise is due to Miss Farquhar, the Hospital 
Superintendent, and to Miss Aubin, the Assistant Secretary, for their 
admirable and practical management. 

The following tables show the diseases treated in the wards during 
the past year.

REPORT OF BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE 

COMMITTEE. 



On the 2ist day of December, 191 1, ground was broken for the 
new building, near the Harvard Medical School. Arrangements were 
made with the architects and contractors to build on the instalment 
plan, contracts to be entered into from time to time as the funds on 
hand permitted, the price of the whole, however, being lixed. At 
present the outside walls and roof have been completed, the rough 
flooring has been laid, the partitions, rough plumbing, rough heating, 
and electrical work are now almost installed. The next logical con- 
tract is to connect the building with the Harvard Medical School 
tunnel, from which heat, light and power are to come, and to make 
the necessary arrangements for heating the building so that the plas- 
tering and other finishing work can proceed. The group of contracts 
which the architects advise letting together now will call for a little 
over $20,000. Before these contracts, or any contracts of substantial 
amount, can be entered into, however, additional money must be 
raised. 

The original fund for the new building, subscribed about ten years 
ago, amounted to approximately $80,000. A part of this was used 
to purchase the land from Harvard College. A renewed effort to in- 
crease the amount was started last spring. After the meeting held at 
the Harvard Medical School, an appeal in the form of a circular was 
mailed to about three thousand persons. Another appeal in the form 
of a report of the meeting of May 24th was widely circulated this 
fall. In response to the two appeals donations amounting to $44,645 
have been received. A subscription of $5,000 has been promised on 
condition that sufficient funds to complete the building be paid in by 
next June. To receive this $5,000 it is necessary that we raise 

$75v355- 

The Committee urges the members of the Corporation and all 

friends oj" the Hospitdil to assist in the effort to procure the funds 

necessary to complete the building. If each will do his share NO W 



20 

by sending some contribution^ large or small^ and by inducing 
others to subscribe^ we can accomplish our purpose. Unless all 
help^ the completion of this work may be indefinitely postponed. 
This is the psychological moment for a united effort. The cause 
has been well advertised^ and is in the -public mind. All that re- 
mains is a little personal effort on the fart of those interested. 
Let each do what he can in whatever way he can. The result^ if 
all work earnestly.) will be success. 

Subscribers should be asked to send their donations, made payable 
to the '' Infants' Hospital Fund," to Messrs. Kidder, Peabody & Com- 
pany, 115 Devonshire Street, Boston.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



Important features of the work which has been carried on during 
the past year have been the efficiency in perfection of system, true 
humanitarian interest and aid to the poor, which have existed in and 
have emanated from most cramped and inadequate quarters. The 
building is old and needs continual repair; its time for use as a hos- 
pital has long since passed, and were it not for the unwavering 
devotion, skill and broad knowledge of the requisites for caring for 
sick babies, of those in charge, the work would have inevitably come 
to an end. 

There is a special phase of the work of the Infants' Hospital which 
is not found elsewhere. It combines the skilled and modern care of 
the first two years of life with being a center where all knowledge of 
health and disease, at this time of life, can be obtained and is freely 
given. 

Even in its unprepossessing condition the Hospital stands as an 
example of what can be accomplished in the reduction of infant 
mortality, a subject which lately has been one of the leading questions 
of the day. It is not, however, merely this phase of the work which 
makes the Infants' Hospital unique. It is well known that it is not 
merely the physician's r61e in the question of disease in early life 
which is of importance in the questions of infant welfare. One 
among other factors in the problem, which has been carried out and 
has proved eminently satisfactory in the work of the Hospital, is the 
combination in training of graduate nurses and nursery maids. Here 
as in no other hospital, that we know of, is given to graduate nurses 
and nursery maids an opportunity for education in what might be 
called "team work." Physicians as well as the laity, who are fa- 
miliar with this " team work," greatly appreciate it. The advantage 
to the graduate nurse of obtaining special post-graduate training is 
evident, and graduate nurses from all parts of the country avail them- 
selves of this opportunity for advanced training in a class of cases 
which receives little attention in the general hospitals. The demand 



la 

for nursery maids often exceeds greatly the supply, but owing to the 
very limited accommodations we are unable to increase the number 
of pupils. Diplomas have been given during the year to eight post- 
graduate nurses and to fifteen nursery maids. 

It is hoped that friends of the Hospital will endeavor to increase 
our list of annual subscribers as additional income from this source 
is imperative. 

In connection with the question of infant mortality the Medical 
Director again draws the attention of the philanthropic public to the 
crying need of getting out of the old tumble down, unhygienic 
building which now represents the Infants' Hospital, and of supplying 
sufficient money to finish the new hospital. No more philanthropic, 
important and practical charity exists than the supplying of funds for 
the completion of the building of the new Infants* Hospital and for 
its maintenance. It would seem that for the honor and self-respect 
of our city these funds should be forthcoming. 

In the new building babies can be received in the summer months, 
while in our present Hospital this has not been deemed advisable. 
Here also opportunity will be given to carry on the very necessary 
research work which every modern hospital should provide for, if 
the number of deaths in the early months of life is to be reduced. 

Owing to the inadequate number of beds only two hundred and 
ninety-five admissions have been made in the wards during the past 
year. In the Out-Patient Department two thousand, three hundred 
and twenty-four new cases in children of all ages have applied for 
treatment, and the total number of visits made during the year was 
twelve thousand, six hundred and seventy-three. 

It is with great regret that the Medical Director has to record the 
loss to the Hospital by death of a member of the Corporation, Mrs. 
F. R. Sears, and of the following subscribers : Mrs. J. M. Crafts, 
John Templeton Coolidge, Mrs. F. Cunningham, Mrs. G. R. Emmer- 
ton, Wolcott H. Johnson, Mrs. Moorfield Storey, Benjamin Vaughn, 
and Mrs. Henry Woods. Miss Bessie MacLean, a most capable 
nurse of the post-graduate course, died of mastoiditis and meningitis 
on March 24, 191 2. Miss MacLean, though in the Hospital for only 
a few weeks, endeared herself to everyone. 

The Directors wish to present their sincere thanks to the members 
of the Hospital Committee, the Ladies* Aid Society, the House Com- 
mittee, the Committee on Ways and Means, the Committee on Nursery 
Maids, and to the Visitors in the Wards, for their interest in and their 
work for the Hospital. 



14 

The Directors wish to express their appreciation of the good ser- 
vices of, and their regret that overwork has necessitated the resignation 
of, Drs. James R. Torbet, Arthur R. Kimpton, Edward L. Young 
and Clarence E. Bryant. The Directors also offer their sincere 
thanks to the members of the Medical and Surgical Staff for their 
remarkably efficient and arduous work in the very limited space which 
the Hospital provides. The Directors feel that too much praise can- 
not be given to the Hospital Superintendent, Miss Margaret Farquhar, 
and to Miss Helen Aubin, the Assistant Secretary, through whose 
efforts the many difficult Hospital details have been managed most 
admirably. 

The following table shows the diseases treated in the wards during 
the year 1912.

REPORT OF BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE 

COMMITTEE. 



During the past year work on the new building has progressed 
slowly, but continuously. New contracts have been entered into from 
time to time as the proceeds on hand justified. Considerable delay 
and some expense has been caused, however, by the fact that sub- 
scriptions come in so slowl}^ The cost of the new building to date 
(including amount for work now being done) is something over 
$142,000. It is estimated that approximately $60,000 will be needed 
to finish and equip it. The next contract, including general carpenter 
work and inside finish, calls for about $20,000. Of this amount, the 
Committee has on hand not more than $2000. In other words, an 
additional $18,000 must be contributed before work can proceed, after 
the present contracts are concluded. 

Earnest efforts have been made since the last Annual Meeting to 
raise the necessary funds. An appeal was made through the adver- 
tising columns of the Saturday Evening Post. Although the actual 
financial response to this appeal was not large, nevertheless the re- 
plies received show clearly that persons throughout the United States, 
and even in other countries, are greatly interested in the work of our 
Hospital. 

An additional argument for finishing the new Hospital speedily is 
furnished by our relations to the institutions which are to surround 
our new home. It is expected that the building of these institutions 
will be finished in the spring or in the early autumn. It seems im- 
portant that we complete our building at the same time, not only as a 
matter of obligation to our neighbors, but as a matter of policy in 
showing our ability to do our share in the development of the great 
medical undertaking. 

The Committee urges the members of the Corporation and all 

friends of the Hospital to assist in the efort to procure the funds 

necessary to complete the building. If each will do his share NOW 

by sending some contribution,^ large or small^ and inducing others 



20 

to subscribe^ w: can accomplish our purpose. Unless all kelp^ the 
completion oj' this work maybe indejinitely postponed. We have 
almost reached our goal. Nearly three-fourths of the total amount 
has been obtained. We should neither fail nor delay in procuring 
the last $60,000. 

Subscribers should be asked to send their donations, made payable 
to '' Infants Hospital Fund/* to Messrs. Kidder, Peabody & Company, 
115 Devonshire Street, Boston.
